'Elegantissima'

Leaves with an irregular margin of creamy white, centre grey-green; winter-stems red. Also known as ‘Sibirica Variegata’; both names are in use, but the one adopted here seems to be the better established, at least in this country. The epithet argenteo-marginata has been applied both to this clone and to ‘Variegata’, but is not a valid name for either.
